New gallery: The opening show – ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2017

Kiira Korpi and Laura Lepistö / Link to The opening show – ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2017 gallery

ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2017 are arranged in Helsinki on 29.3.-2.4.2017. I visited The opening show on Wednesday evening. I like to photograph skating shows more than the actual skating competitions, as lights are more dramatic, and backgrounds are dark or black 🙂 But unfortunately this dim and varying lightning means that photography is also much more difficult…. But I think that photos are still worth the effort! You can see my photos in The opening show – ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2017 gallery.
